This session is a call to action for businesses to build resilience, mainstream best practices, protect biodiversity and contribute to more sustainable agriculture and food sector. We will hear insights from businesses and partners involved or interested in the TEEBAgriFood for business project, and discuss how valuing nature and people decision making can lead to actionable change.
Transformation in the agri-food sector has the potential to deliver systemic benefits for nature and people. The TEEBAgriFood for Business project supports this transformation through guidance, training and pilot applications of a capitals approach to business decision-making, leading to long term protection of nature and a healthy food system.
In the session, Banorte, a major Mexican bank, and Liv Up, a Brazilian start-up, will share their experience of applying the TEEBAgriFood Operational Guidelines for Business. The Center for Responsible Business India, will share their vision of global coalitions to support food system transformation locally.
A high-level panel discussion, composed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the UN Environmental Program and a policy-maker from the ministry of Agriculture Netherlands, will reflect on these testimonials and explore the roles of the private and public sectors in the journey towards a more sustainable food system.
